Yeah, the Tampa Bay cornerbacks were as bad as you feared last year.
Consider: The team signed Brent Grimes in free agency. And Josh Henderson.
Consider: The team drafted Vernon Hargreaves in the draft. And Ryan Smith.
Smith, from North Carolina Central, was the latest player the Bucs thought was worth taking in the NFL draft. One scouting report suggested that the big schools had really missed their evaluations of Smith.
Now, he will have time to play special teams and work in as a nickelback for the Bucs.
The Bucs, trying to get better against the pass, also drafted one defensive end (Noah Spence) and signed one in free agency (Robert Ayers).
In the fifth round, the Bucs drafted offensive tackle Caleb Benenoch.
